Meteorites and Moonrocks

Moon_2079572bDuring the week beginning 20th January the science department will have some meteorites from the Natural History Museum and samples of moon rock on loan from NASA.

Students will get the opportunity to see the samples in special assemblies and during lessons, and they will hear about what the rocks tell us about how the solar system was formed.

Family members of UVHS students can attend a presentation on Wednesday 22nd at 5.30pm in the school hall. Please phone 01229 483900 if you would like to attend.

The events surrounding the loan of the meteorites and lunar rocks are part of the science department’s continuing work with the Ogden Trust to provide enrichment opportunities for students across Furness and South Cumbria.
